Personal Experience: I still remember some of the great letters we wrote to and received from Santa. One of my sister’s letters even made it into the local newspaper! With that in mind, I was happy to work with Santa Will Write on a review of their Deluxe Package. I couldn’t wait to see Xander’s reaction!
Our package arrived by priority mail in a flat mailer. It was actually hand-delivered right to our door by the mail carrier… we haven’t had a letter delivered like that in a long time! Inside was a big, shiny, red envelope. I love that it was addressed to Xander and from Santa and postmarked from the North Pole on the outer mailer and on the inside envelope. This meant none of that risk of the kids seeing the letter arrive for mommy and daddy or with difficult to explain address info. Great move, Santa Will Write!
The inner red envelope had an easy to open tab. They really thought of everything, including the difficulties young children might have opening a typical envelope. Inside was a letter from Santa, a letter from Rudolph, a Nice List certificate that is frame-ready, a sticker sheet with workshop background, glitter holiday tattoos, a double-sided erasable game board, and “Magical Dust.” Okay, so I’m still finding glitter in weird places, but it was a fun touch on this package that has made Xander happy even days after he received it.
The letters were both well-written and fun. The personalization that we do was nicely integrated into both letters and it made for a fun read. I love the inclusion of a letter from Rudolph in this package. He even signed it with a hoof! Xander really loved playing with the sticker set. He was able to apply, remove, and reapply the stickers over and over to the included Santa’s Workshop background. He enjoyed coloring on the activity sheet, but he wasn’t as in to the game on the other side. We are saving the tattoos for using during Christmas parties, so I can’t say how durable they are… but the designs are cute and they seem like typical temporary tattoos.
I loved the whole package… even the annoying glitter… enough that I really want to order their Ultra Deluxe package next year. It includes fun extras like Reindeer Food, a piece of Santa’s suit from last year, and retired bells from the reindeer. It’s a package full of little details that really will bring some Santa magic home.
Pros: Fun and well-designed package full of delights! Great package options at great prices. Rudolph letter is a great extra. Arrived very quickly. They thought out the details.
Cons: I’m a Scrooge about glitter and the cleanup, but it was fun for Xander.
